Well...since my celiac diagnosis I have now also been diagnosed with a dairy intolerance....oh the humanity of it all....

 

i really struggle with with breakfast as I am a clean eater.

typically, I will have a protein shake or scrambled eggs with veg.

i am soooo bored with breakfast as I cannot have cheese or yogurt... Any suggestions on what to have for breakfast? :)

Frittata?  Mushrooms with a side of salsa or a poached egg on top.  Sautéed tomatoes, steamed spinach and bacon? Coconut yoghurt (non dairy) with some seeds/safe grains, fresh fruit?  Fruit compote? Porridge made with rice/quinoa flakes?

Not sure precisely what clean eating rules out? Could you have a non lactose yogurt? There are soya based ones here in the UK, although in another thread someone warned me off Soy!

I see you have scrambled egg with veg. I rotate fresh fruit and yogurt and the occasional gluten-free cereal or bread as a treat, but omelettes are my go to breakfast food. It's a good way to incorporate lots of vegetables and protein because you can mix and match the fillings depending on what you've got in or fancy.  Avocado, Kale, Spinach, Onions, Mushrooms, Peppers, Chicken, Bacon etc. etc.  I add fresh coriander or parsley too. When I get bored of that I make egg bhurji, although you may not want all those spices if you're stomach is delicate! I'm also thinking about this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/spiced_north-african_82972 next time I'm bored.

  I read from another person that they couldn't have raw dairy, but hard cheese didn't upset them...  Not sure since I wouldn't expect protein to change from milk to cheese.  I'm starting to suspect I have a dairy issue as well...  I also read that sometimes celiacs can return to dairy after they've healed a bit?  But, I've also read that sometimes you can develop issues also.. hard to keep track.

You are talking about lactose intolerance.  It is the sugar in dairy.  Many adults, Celiac or not, cannot digest the lactose.  For a Celiac, the part of the villi damaged by Celiac produces the enzyme that digests this sugar.  When your villi heal, you may regain the ability to digest this sugar.  You may not, because many adults don't make that enzyme.  Some adults may produce varying amounts  of lactase (the enzyme), and that may allow them to digest small amounts of lactose (the sugar).  Hard cheeses usually have very lactose so many people can digest them fine.

Buckwheat cereal is what I go to a lot.  Oats may or may not be ok with you.  If you go to a gluten free store there are lots of gluten free cereal options.  Instead of cow's milk there is almond milk, coconut milk, rice milk, hemp milk, soy milk.

I usually have sautéed yellow peppers, kale (or spinach) mushrooms as a base.  Then throw in some leftovers like baked sweet potato, or chicken chunks, add an egg and call it a breakfast!
